Calculation of CO2 emissions2
In La Sepulvedana we are fully convinced of the importance of managing our Organization from an environmentally sustainable point of view. We consider establishing a management of emissions policy as a main requirement that allows us to take up a position as a Passenger Transportation Company aware of the management of the greenhouse gas emissions.
Thus, and as a proof of our compromise, we have decided to quantify all of the greenhouse emissions made by our buses as the ISO standards 14046-1:2012 requirements by being audited and certified by an independent institution.By calculating the ecological footprint we are able to measure the environmental impact generated by our daily activities.
Now you can also discover how much CO2 emissions you can avoid in every bus trip, as you contribute to reduce them by traveling with La Sepulvedana instead of using your car. You also fight against the global warming and the greenhouse effect this way
Enter your journey length in kilometers and you will find out how many CO2 kilograms you save by traveling with us, and also its equivalence.
Calculation based in the following data:
Emissions by La Sepulvedana = 0,023kg CO2 for passenger and kilometer. (Calculation certified by Bureau Veritas as an authorized independent institution, which is based in emissions of a bus with Euro IV motor fully loaded). Car= 0,185kg CO2 for passenger and kilometer. (Source: 2012 Guidelines to Defra / DECCs GHG Conversion Factors) corresponding to a regular diesel car with only one seat occupied). Equivalency data: (“carbon.to”, an application developed by “Centre for Sustainable Communications at KTH, Stockholm”). .
